The team worked organized and clean. The result is impressive and we are looking forward to work with them again. We got a lot of support for our construction from the management and his team. The team of DK Conquest Construction Inc. is highly skilled and we will recommend them to our contacts.
We hired DK construction to build our working ensuite in the showroom at The Ensuite, Emco. They did a superb job under a tight budget. I would definitely recommend them to customers. Amanda/Eric/Dennis are very friendly and easy to deal with.
DK Conquest Construction undertook my fairly complete condo renovation, which ended up being nearly 3 months of solid work. Dennis, the owner, and I conferred on a daily basis about what was being done, what I had to do by a certain date, like choosing materials, or if there were any glitches with incoming supplies or with his team. I think that my project went so well because I was actively involved and because Dennis is highly responsible and great at communication. No reno is complete without some kind of hitch; in my case a few broken tiles and mirrors, and a delay with the kitchen cabinets. I am pretty fussy, but thank goodness Dennis was able to rectify everything in a very timely manner. We had some issues with the quality of the paint at the end but again, that was completed to my satisfaction. The custom shelving his team built for the closets, the bathroom and the pantry are amazing! The floors were completed very quickly with excellent sound proofing. Dennis is calm and professional at all times This was my third and largest reno to date, and I am now enjoying living in a space that is perfect for me.
Thank you DK Conquest!
I have edited my original review to include more information compared to the original.
If you don't want to read the entire review, I've summarized it in 3 words. DO NOT HIRE!
Why? THEY QUIT MY RENOVATION HALF WAY THROUGH AFTER DEMOLISHING MY CONDO!!!
I hired DK conquest for a kitchen renovation (new cabinets, counter, sink, appliances, backsplash, the full deal), and to update the flooring and ceiling throughout my condo. A contract was signed between myself and DK Conquest. They started work in early January.
DK Conquest spent approximately 15 days working on my kitchen renovation throughout January. During that time, the demolition of the kitchen, flooring and ceiling was done. Once my condo had been thoroughly destroyed, DK Conquest disappeared for 2 MONTHS!!! Between January 29th and March 20th, they had workers in my condo for a total of 4 days!!! 4 days out of a total 35 WEEKdays! In those 4 days of work, 3 of them were spent installing the incorrect flooring underlay (which I had specified in the scope of work contract and with the contractor multiple times!). This actually moved my project backwards! I was constantly told they would "have people in later this week", but when I checked in daily, it was obvious no one had stepped foot in my condo (I have hundreds of progress & LACK-OF-PROGRESS pictures to document the entire timeline of my renovation).
I contacted DK Conquest multiple times throughout February and March to get to the bottom of why my renovation had come to a screeching hault after my condo was rendered unlivable. When I had enough of no progress being made, I told Dennis my renovation needs to start advancing otherwise I was going to find someone else to complete it, as well as explore legal options. The response I got was a call from Dennis telling me they would not be finishing my renovation.
THEY QUIT MY RENOVATION HALF WAY THROUGH AFTER DEMOLISHING MY CONDO!!!
In the approximately 15 days of work they did do, there were numerous screw-ups and poor attention to detail.
-Tile flooring was installed in a condo (obvious noise proofing needed) with the wrong underlay. The underlay was specified in the scope of work contract. It was also specified in emails and calls before and during the renovation.
-Kitchen counter was built at the wrong height even though I provided professional blueprints. (this was fixed after I pointed it out)
-The work crew unplugged my fridge and ruined all the food inside.
-I learned after they quit that nothing (counters, cabinets, sink, etc) was ever ordered.
-The furniture I could not relocate to a sheltered area was left uncovered and subsequently dirtied.
-Some of my furniture was placed outside onto an weather exposed open balcony. This furniture will likely need to be replaced.
-The bathroom, where no work was being done, was left open and subsequently dirtied.
-My personal towels were used to clean tools and equipment. They will need to be replaced.
-The work crew left my condo with the windows open in January and my temperature set to 30*C.
-Painting was the poorest quality I've ever seen. Dozens of places where ceiling paint was on walls, wall paint was on ceiling. I showed pictures to a painter friend from out of town and he just laughed.
-My original project manager quit half way through my project because Dennis was not allowing her to advance my project. (Dennis said she is "no longer working for DK Conquest" in his original rebuttal to my original review. Those are lies. She quit.)
-HORRENDOUS communication from the following 2 project managers. On multiple occasions I went weeks with no contact from anyone at DK.
-They left PILES of garbage in my condo and on my balcony.
-Did I mention THEY QUIT MY RENOVATION HALF WAY THROUGH AFTER DEMOLISHING MY CONDO!!!
Trust me, keep searching.
Ya my view is biased, but the results speak for themselves.
The pictures I've posted are the state of my condo after DK Conquest quit my project.
DO NOT HIRE.
This is one of those company growth issues. DK Conquest had grown very well due to our reputation. Unfortunately, this growth also affected DK Conquest. The management team on this project and others did not deliver the way DK Conquest has been successfully delivering for many years. DK Conquest offered an option to help but client's mind was made up, understandably. The management team is no longer working for the DK Conquest anymore and we will make sure people like these don't come in and infiltrate us any longer
We'd like to apologize to David and few clients that were affected by this issue.
